Faith investors turn on pharmaceuticals companies - Telegraph

Marc Aupiais

Christian Brothers is Catholic. They and other Christian investors want responsible, sustainable, moral, sound capitalism.

Note on Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber

Note by Marc Aupiais

I've been praying for Selena Gomez for two years. Mostly disappointed prayer! Mostly hardship! Pain!

One thing I will note. She must really love Justin Bieber. She risks her life whenever she goes near him. She risks her career, she is bullied and hated 24/7.

She has also lost many potential fans. And the rumours of unchastity have upset many. I know I lost many followers before I deleted twitter: for supporting her.

I don't think the feeling is mutual. Justin Bieber has created a cult around himself for years and continues this cult.

All the harm she faces daily for him, is due to this. Due to his statements and how he conducts himself. Money first, anyone else much much later.

I wish Catholic Selena Gomez would return. But she needs my prayer and your prayers.

She needs us Christians. To teach her soul and spirit that man is not God, nor worth your life if they intentionally endanger it for monetary gain.

Pray for Selena Gomez! And then for whichever famous person you know. I think fame is a weapon the devil most commonly uses: on famous and unfamous alike!

Thoughts on Rebecca Black

Note by Marc Aupiais

With Rebecca Black emerging as the latest wealthy "village joker"... I got thinking about fame.

About how people we don't know, we mock, adore, obey...

How we put them and their views before friends... And forgive them what we'd never easily forgive a friend. And hate and love them.

Rebecca Black proves that fame isn't talent. As does Justin Bieber who shocks me in his fame. But most up and coming artists are hardly worth a second glance. As with presidents and politicians...

So who does that leave?

Rebecca Black may have brought twitter to her song- in how she sings thoughts as twitter tweets thoughts...

But shouldn't our real heroes be those who make us make good decisions even when they're mean in how they achieve it?

Shouldn't our real heroes be those who hold the faith and don't just claim to?

Shouldn't it be those who live and not those who die pointlessly in political and vendetta wars who are heroes. The peacemakers... The meek... The man who died on a cross was not a rock star. Just the opposite. Isaiah 53: Jesus was not attractive or charismatic. What drew people was truth.

As for Rebecca Black. She's thirteen years old. More than the cyber bullying: the life where people never leave highschool is her greatest cross to bear in life. Woe to the celebrity. You either obey the crowds or your intuitive self. So many choose the crowds.

What is worse? Convincing someone they are a God, and to close off to all criticism like a plague in the stomach? Or mocking them sometimes?

A culture of celebrity is a culture of death: that death is suffered first by the object- those sought to replace God!

Admire, love, pray for those you care for. View celebrities as people with human dignity not objects. And be cautious when mocking- perhaps first mock the society which creates these false gods of the culture of death: where the law of the jungle prevails over truth, meekness, kindness: mere Christianity! Sadly by the choice of many a guilty party~
